how bout those people (even some with friends in the bldg) that say time to move on with life and the memorial today should not take place - hard to believe.

The experience of mourning is such an intimate and private process. Regardless of one's personal connection with the tragedy, trying to somehow dictate how others are supposed to feel about it is inappropriate.

I still remember exactly where and what I was doing when word came down about Twin Towers, as I am sure you do too. It was hard to make it through the day.
Yeah, take a moment today to think about the people that were just doing their job and in an instant, everything was gone.
The following spring my family had the opportunity to go down to the site. The make shift memorials, the smell of death, the emptiness of the site.

We remember it all too well. The sky was so clear and blue that it seemed as if the sun was only there to cast that much more of a stark spotlight on the horror. My daughter was not quite five, and I told her, "This is a day you will never forget."

I was in my boss's office at 111 Wall St - we saw all of this paper blowing past the windows and had no idea what was going on as all of the windows on our side of the building faced the east river & Brooklyn. Soon someone on the floor heard what was going on through his radio - when the towers fell our building was engulfed in dust and smoke.

I cried watching the choir singing Star Spangled Banner this morning on the news.

My daughters asked me about it last night - it really puts things in perspective. The older two (14 & 11 now) rememeber the day - my brother stopped by and was very upset and a friend came by and stayed with my wife. I was able to call her early (between the time planes hit and towers fell but later no calls would go through). I walked to Penn Sta, bought two Foster's and got a train to Babylon - it was all quite surreal at that point - I remmeber Penn being nearly deserted except for cops and one or two markets open, the train I got on sat for an hour or so before we headed out to LI.
